7:13 am
killed during a traffic stop on wednesday much police say protesters through firework, bottles and rock at officers. this comes as dallas, tech text, continues to grieve the loss of five of its police officers killed in an ambush by a shooter who said he was upset about these recent killings of black men by white officers. how do you explain this to our kids? with all the videos out there we decided to bring an expert to make sense of all of this right now. joining us this morning psychologist dr. rosslyn pits joining us. it's so confusing i was watching the news on friday and my sons watching this with me. mom, what's going on. >> i was at a loss for words. my first reaction let me figure it out, too and how do we frame it. >> what do we say. >> you need to figure it out. as parent you have to be informed, you have to understand your emotions and you have to understand your response to what's going on before you can talk to your children. once that is done, we have to be honest with our children. we really have to look at saying, we have a problem in our community.
7:14 am
we really need to look at what's going on with the police as well as what's going on in the african-american community. we really want to stop using exclusive terms like all or every and we want to start using words like some. some police officers are misusing their power and they are abusing men of color, african-american american in particular. we have to walk a fine balance particularly for african-american parents where we teach our children that police are there to protect us, balancing that with the understanding that there's some police officers who abuse their power and hurt many and women who may look like you. >> how do you have -- that's actually one of the things die say to my children and i crimple whenever speak such a volatile subject. i said to my son, sometimes you're the big brother and you pick on the little brother. we can pick on people who we perceive to be weaker than ourselves. we can abuse our power and that's the way i sort of frame it. how do we have that conversation with our children and say in some cases it's important to
7:15 am
really use our power so wisely? >> well, i think the first thing we haved to, we have to start teaching about fairness and that even starts from the little ones like two. because if you give one child a cup of juice, 6 ounces and another 8 ounces it's like world war three in your household. so when children start to understand the concept of fair, and you start to bring that into the conversation, it is not fair that when african-american are stopped in their cars that they have to be afraid for their lives. it's not fair when pee he police officers start to abuse individuals because they have power. children start to understand that. and when we teach them to become allies to speak up and speak out against injustice and unfairness in their world, so as they become adults they will become advocates and allies to people who may need their support. >> you know, we have all these police officers who are op obviously tragically shot at many of them lost their lives. so many losses and so many different components to this story. is there a way to teach our children that it's important for
7:16 am
us to -- how we can fix this? i don't know if there's an answer. problem there's flexible answer as grown ups much how do we sell our children we can fix it. >> i think our biggest thing as parents to is make sure our children believe that they're safe. believe that they can protect them and believe that we will do everything in our power to ensure that they're lives are happy and they are well taken care of. i think what you're talking about is a much bigger systemic effort. one of the things we have to do we have to have these conversations around race. we have to have the conversations around the injustice. we have to have the conversations around police brutal l we have to the the conversations around black lives matter and why this is an important movement and it's not to the exclusion of on the people. it's saying in this particular instance at this particular time in american history black lives are at risk. so i have a younger brother he's 35 years old, and it fry tense me that he could possibly be stopped and harmed just because he's an african-american man
7:17 am
because a police officer is inherently afraid of him. you have to start having these discussions around diversity, around multi culturism around acceptance we can live together as a community because right now, we are in crisis, and it's -- we're afraid. people are afraid. >> i think that's so true. thank you. hopefully we can move in direction of understanding on all different fronts. thanks so much for your time as we try to explain this to our kids as well. it is 7:17. >> let's get a check of the wet right now. scott, you've got in news. >> beautiful on this sunday. yesterday we had muggy conditions and also scattered showers and downpours but a live look right now at reading, pennsylvania, berks county, beautiful weather. sunshine out there right now, so don't forget that sunscreen but the humidity is much improved today. look at ultimate doppler from yesterday. we had those scattered downpou downpours, even several severe thunderstorm warnings across the area with some locations reporting a little bit of storm

police. their role in healing kind of the divide that exists in the community. i'm curious from your perspective do police have roll in bridging that gap. >> police absolutely have role. major role is to protect and serve and that's what i believe the men and women in police do. protect and serve. >> i think we would agree with that. what about addressing these concerns and these tensions that exist? how do police help fix that? >> well, i can speak for upper darby police department. we try to be proactive in everything we do from hiring to training to interacting with the community. not only that, not only the police department, but the township itself. we reach out to the different communities. we have a mentoring program where i have 40 some officers assigned to every fifth grade in upper darby township to work witness kids as they get to that age where they're making the decisions on their own. we have community policing centers.
8:14 am
we have officers on bike. we have officers on foot. so our goal is always to reach out to the community and address those issues. not only from a police perspective from township wide perspective. >> you're shaking your head. you agree with this. i want your opinion on this but also now the active visits. a lot of animosity. a lot of harsh words out there. what's your role in active visit role in healing. >> i think the active visit roll is healing should be two fold in the sense it's from a therapist standpoint as well. one of things we don't talk about the trauma that occurs when african-american and latino males are killed in our democracy. but in addition to that, when police officers are killed and so we don't really focus on how we need to really have social intervention. we need to have social workers, psychiatrists, psychologists who are working in these communities to deal with trauma that exists before the shooting and trauma that exists after the shooting. the role of the active visit is to speak pry truth, power and to tell the truth and not cloud the truth. to tell the truth in way that it's compassionate, that it's something that people can
8:15 am
embrace and to it similar to what martin luther king did. he toll the truth with love. we have challenges in our community on all sides of the color line. we have challenges not all police but we also need to recognize when when see black and latino males we can't render them invisible. >> one of the things that bothers me as i watch lot of protests even see the anger and. two individuals can sit here haven't a discussion. you two individuals can try to heal. why aren't we doing a better job of doing that as community as whole? >> from my perspective i think that that's -- that's extremely important and that's the way to go and again i talk about upper darby. however, with that being said, what do we do with the stream mists? >> right. activisms great. activisms important working together with the community is absolutely number one priority. however, how do you feel with those individuals who are vent on creating turmoil and catastrophic events. >> i think that anger and the venom is not something that we
8:16 am
run away from. i think conflict oftentimes leads to chaos and chaos leads to comfort. you have to have people who are trained and conflict resolution, mediation conciliation to work with individuals. i think oftentimes we look at rage and we look at anger and we try to run it way from. james baldwin said to be black and conscious in america is in a current state of rage because of white supremacy not white people per se but the institution of racism which is prejudice plus power. sometimes equals out justice only on one side of the color line. >> do you think that police in general recognize that there is this divide between the police and the community? i see a lot of denial but it comes from elected officials, from people who are speaking out. >> from historical perspective i've been doing this for 52 years. and there's always been a divi divide. >> smart chiefs, smart chiefs, try and bring the community in. but there's that divide. but remember one thing. at the end of the day, there's 9/11 calls keep coming in.
8:17 am
people are still calling police for those that murder, rape, rob and pillage in our community much it doesn't matter what color you are. >> and we know we need to row lie on police. the things that you're doing at your particular department upper darby is essential but i think one of things that the community wants to know is why is it when some white officers approach some white males who oftentimes are armed they get the benefit of the doubt and it goes something like this. put the gun down peter. off lot to live for. put the gun away buddy. when we come across raheem or african-american latino we're just quick to shoot them hands up no weapon. i think that's the challenge that we see in the community. i just actually did some research around 30 videos i saw with white officers and white males and these white males that guns and they did not get shot when we look at what happened to eric gardner we don't want to talk about that i think that's not for me that's what the community is saying. >> i think -- unfortunately wee have to leave it there. a lot more to talk about. i think what we're doing here we are talking about it.

8:34 am
winslow was fabulous. i believe some of the reasons that we don't have that in our community we do have a lot of partnerships that the police officers from our town make with our community members and our residents. so we don't have these problems that do occur. >> what did you guys say to each other? (laughter). >> he asked if we can talk in private and i brought him in my office and at that point i'm not sure if he knew i was the chief at the time or that was the chief' office. >> no clue. >> he came in and andre and his friends said we're in the here to confess for crime. >> seemed very awkward. i'm not here to confess. we walk in. can we talk to a police officer the lady the secretary was like, um, is there something wrong? >> and we're like, yeah, but not like you think. like we're not here to confess to anything. >> so we had a nice conversati conversation. he explained that he had some problems with what's going on recently in the news all over, and it bothers him and i explained to him it bothers us as well, and seeing anything on
